Dear Senior DECATS families,
Yesterday we received news from the DeBusk Foundation that we could not use grant funds to deliver a virtual Senior DECATS program in 2020. Without that funding and approval, we are unable to continue with our proposed plans. We will be unable to have the 2020 Senior DECATS program in any format.
Senior DECATS will return to Bishop Lynch and the tentative dates are June 1-17, 2021. We will keep all of our records, schedules, and payments (deposits) and apply them to the 2021 program. All rising 7th and 8th-grade scholars who are in the program for 2020 will automatically be in the 2021 program. We will contact rising 9th graders individually and issue deposit refunds.
After 27 years of providing enrichment programming for the identified talented and gifted scholars of the Dallas area, it is very sad not to be able to spend three weeks in June with you. Thank you in advance for your patience and commitment to the Senior DECATS program. We hope to see you in June 2021 to serve you and provide an exciting, energetic, and innovative experience. We pray that your family is safe and that you have a relaxing summer.
